Progress on the U.S. - Colombia FTA
The United States has reached an agreement with Colombia on labor and judicial reforms that will open the door for US Congressional approval of the long-pending U.S.-Colombia Trade Promotion Agreement. The Obama Administration has worked closely with the Government of Colombia and interested stakeholders, including Members of Congress, to address labor concerns resulting in an agreed Action Plan Related to Labor Rights.
The U.S.-Colombia Trade Agreement will expand U.S. goods exports alone by more than $1.1 billion and give key U.S. goods and services duty free access in sectors from manufacturing to agriculture. It will increase U.S. GDP by $2.5 billion and support thousands of additional U.S. jobs.
